1965. Armada Place (15)

I don’t think I can ever recall being disappointed with a Sepr piece in the few years that I have been enjoying street art. His distinctive cartoon style and sense of fun ooze from his works which usually raise a smile.

In this piece, marking the end of 2018, we see a sunbather being mildly abused by some birds (gulls?). One is stealing his ring, another emptying cream on his tummy, another drinking his cocktail and the last using a magnifying glass to burn his toes. Now when I first saw this, I thought someone had drawn a cock and balls on the man’s stomach, but the more I have looked at it, the more I think it is a sketch drawn by the bird with the tube of sun cream. A brilliant piece – comedy on a hoarding. Nice to see that Sepr and Epok have decorated the nearby wheely bin too.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.

  1. The art pieces and the commentaries you post never cease to amaze me. I mention this because my vision is low and I would miss many of the details if you did not explain what to look for. Excellent posting. thank you.
